I cannot tell you how hard it is for me to get my husband to a Dr.! If you have been reading my blog, you will know that we have been "shopping" for new health insurance because our COBRA benefits run out soon. One thing I learned was that a person or group is MORE LIKELY to get a better rate if they see a Dr. regularly for checkups, etc. That is something to think about. Insurance companies think a person is more of a risk if they don't see a Dr. regularly for physicals and routine checkups. That is something to think about. I'm glad this pastor is encouraging his flock to take better care of themselves. After all, God calls us to be good stewards of our "temple" (bodies).
